Fantastic Day Tour To Hobbiton

This was a wicked trip to Hobbiton and back from Auckland. Comfy mini van, very clean and tidy. Due to the current situation there was only 2 of us on the tour which made it feel like a private tour which would normally be more expensive. The tour guide was amazing, so funny, friendly and full of wicked stories about New Zealand. The actual tour of Hobbiton was a dream come true for me and will more then likely go back for one of their special events. Hobbit holes, amazing scenery and a cider to end the day, what more is needed. Great tour and I recommend for anyone looking for a wicked day out!!
